ForeverMissed
This memorial website was created in memory of our loving wife and mother, Elaine Whitlock.  She lived to see 71 years old despite the many health issues she endured throughout the years. She was such a selfless soul and always tried to make others happy before she sought happiness for herself. I cannot explain the many calls I received from people of all walks of life, colors, co-workers, lifetime friends, and many I didn't even know. Sharing with me the laughter, and perfect memories of this "angel on earth" that I called my mother.  This old world will ever see another or know the presence of this beautiful soul, and boy will they miss out on this person I called mommy.
Many thanks for all of you that called to share your condolences, thoughts, well wishes, prayers, and sympathy for my family. I thank you on behalf of each one of us during this time of pure raw pain.
Thank you!


Though her smile is gone forever
And her hand I cannot touch
I still have so many beautiful memories
Of the woman, I loved and cherished so much.
Her memory is now my keepsake
Which I'll never part
God has her in his keeping
I have her in my heart
Sadly missed but never ever, ever forgotten...

Mrs. Elaine Balfour-Whitlock family:
I am deeply grieved for my beloved friend and classmate for over fifty
years. I will never forget the many conversations and laughter we had and
especially two days before she passed away. God thank you I am blessed to have had a special friend. She made this world a little better for me and
for all the others who knew her. She has been a sincere friend and will
never be forgotten. It 's hard to face the loss of a long-time friend far away. Elaine thank you for being my friend. Love You!

A beautiful, kind, loving and generous lady. She was strong, always had a kind word and a listening ear.
My family loved her and enjoyed her presence.
I especially appreciate how she embraced and showed love to my children. (Her bonus children)
Rest in Paradise, Enjoy the VICTORY! We will miss you!❤

My mommy

I cannot talk to you face to face so I’m forced to come here to your page and speak to you. You don’t know how much these days you have been gone has truly affected me. I thought you would always be here for me.. I feel so selfish with these thoughts but you always listened to my fears, laughed in my joys, and prayed with me in my time of need. Where can I go for the comfort you brought me? Mommy, please know that I love you so and I miss you even more. Your now and forever in my ♥️. I miss you..

Elaine and I have been friends for more than 60 years. We talked about this at our last conversation.  I said 50 years and she said you know it’s been way more than that, more like 60.  However many,  she was always a beautiful soul. A beautiful person in and out.  I love her and will never forget her.  Her work is done,  may she Rest In Peace
